Who Can Lead This Team?

I'm speaking offensively. I think we have plenty of defensive vets and leaders.

I touched on it briefly in the gameday thread, but it seems like we don't have anyone on the offense who can lead this team. Grossman just doesn't seem to have that IT factor that QB needs to have. Romo goes ape s*** on his players, which I think is a bit overkill, but he has that leader quality. As have other QB's I have seen. I look at Cam Newton and I see that leader quality in him, even as a rookie.

But Grossman... Just doesn't seem to have that leader quality. I feel he's inconsistent and has the tendency to choke under pressure. And I don't think Beck has it either. I just feel at this point, we're trying to put a band aid on a gaping wound which is our QB position.

So this begs the question, who's shoulders can this offense trust and lean on?

Re: Who Can Lead This Team?

Well no one this season and honestly IDK about next year either because Rex will play good enough to make us a playoff contender IMO, yeah he's not great but he has his moments.. Lets just wash this game away and move on to STL

The running game leads this offense. Hightowe/Helu/Torain?

Every good Shanny team has a good running game which is the engine for his offense. But when you have an arrogant f*cking son who f*cking thinks Rex grossman needs the ball in his hands a majority of the time and effectively kills any running attack you have, you might as well forfeit the f*cking game before it starts.

I really hate seeing threads like this 3 games into the season.

It was like we were running an entirely different offensive scheme. 3 TEs? I know they had them out there for Ware, but it seems like that completely changed the face of this team. I mean I think because we don't have a QB, we have to lean on the running game. Putting the game mostly in the hands of an inconsistent QB is dicey to begin with. We need to keep the ball out of his hands as much as possible. Just seems like we got totally 1 dimensional all of a sudden and became. Pass, pass, pass. I like aggressive play calling, but not when it's stupidly aggressive.

This has been a problem since last season as well. Everyone blamed McNabb and then saying we didn't have the right team built around him. Alright. We started Grossman last season, built a team a somewhat better team and still can't seem to get the offense running on all cylinders. You must have blinders on if you think that there isn't a flow problem with the Skins.

Tim Hightower- AWESOME block against that #43! Great catch on 3rd and 5 setting up his TD. Didn't run the ball well but when he was in, he made plays, as did Helu.

IMO if Hightower plays well, we'll have a great chance to win.

Re: Who Can Lead This Team?

I don't think this offense has one. I like Moss, I like Cooley, I like Davis, I like Hightower, but none of them really scream, "I'm gonna put this team on my back when they need me to". And I'll keep saying this all year long but Grossman looks like a one year stopgap until we get a franchise qb next offseason. Until then we're just gonna have to make do. Grossman started to look rattled in the 2 minute drill at the end of the game and how can you expect your fellow offensive players to feed off that? I'm starting to agree that this team is lacking that one elite offensive playmaker that you know wants the ball when the chips are down and the game is on the line.

Re: Who Can Lead This Team?

Well... no one. We lack playmakers on the outside. As much as I like Santana he can't do what Dez Bryant did at the end of the game. The offense will do well here and there but when he get up against solid defenses we're going to have trouble putting the ball in the end zone.

Why can't Santana do that? He's shown he can time and time again

I don't think leadership is our problem. We need sharper execution in the red zone.

I agree Matty. We just did not execute in the red zone and credit the Cowpukes D as they pretty much took Fred Davis out of the game.

Has Santana ever had a double digit TD year? He can't physically dominate someone like Bryant can. I love the guy but he should be in the slot and maybe start getting Paul or Hankerson on the outside.
